Today’s meditation kicked off the final week of the challenge that focuses on lovingkindness. I have always enjoyed lovingkindness meditations, both for myself and for other people.
Thinking about something good I did yesterday was the perfect way to get in the lovingkindness mindset. Starting with seeing something positive in myself — no matter how small or seemingly insignificant — makes it easier to then move on and wish it upon others. I often fall back on lovingkindness meditations when I’m frustrated with someone else. As Sharon says, everyone wants to be happy. And wishing someone else happiness, even if that someone is causing me frustration or anger or sadness, always helps me move on and think about something else.
